Blog references, on appeal: An order that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit issued yesterday denying a petition for rehearing contains the following quotation from a petition for rehearing that was previously denied at an earlier stage of the appellate process in that same case:
[T]he Panel's opinion reads more like a posting in its author's well-known blog (, declaring its view of class actions, mischaracterizing class counsel as being inherently corrupted by the inducement to sell out its clients' small claims for its own fees obtained through a collusive settlement.
It can be tempting to use a petition for appellate rehearing or reconsideration as a forum to vent one's frustrations with the adverse result received on appeal, but in my experience that temptation should be avoided.
